Poor Dan

Even if, like myself, you haven't read The Da Vinci Code, you have to feel sorry for Dan Brown. Why should anyone feel sorry for him you ask? Just read this article. The pressure alone for his next book must be enormous and add to that the public mobs:

Gone are the days when he could sit undisturbed in the Grand Gallery of the Louvre, sketching out the murder scene that opens his blockbuster novel. He has stopped taking commercial flights because of the commotion that usually accompanies him, with people lining up in the aisle to get his autograph on books, cocktail napkins, even the occasional air-sickness bag.
I hope those air sickness bags had nothing in them. Ugh. What writer wouldn't want to be rich and famous? Probaby not many. But not like Brown.
